Discussion

Temperatures are near freezing in many suburban locations as we begin the day with light rain falling in spots so watch for slick spots on untreated surfaces. Later today, temperatures rise well above the freezing mark and only light plain rain will fall at times. The moisture field from low pressure off the Mid-Atlantic coastline will shift away to the northeast of here on Wednesday and then low pressure will intensify near the Carolina coastline by Thursday. The precipitation associated with the Carolina storm will stay primarily to the south of here on Thursday, but this system will help to pull down a very cold air mass from Canada for the end of the week and the weekend. Another storm will threaten the Mid-Atlantic in the Sunday/Monday time frame and it has potential to have a high impact on the region.
